|It really all depends on the cat - their age, activity level, etc.
For example, Olivia is an eight year old spayed female. She is moderately active. She weighs ten pounds give or take, and while a tad heavier than I think is ideal, she is by no means fat or even technically overweight. She eats about an ounce and a half twice per day.
Tanner is a six year old neutered male. Again, moderately active. He weighs twelve and a half pounds, and, like Olivia, he is probably within a quarter pound of what I think his ideal weight probably is, but certainly not heavy. He eats about 4 ounces or so per day, split into two meals.
And then Finn, who is two and a half, also weighs ten pounds, and is a much smaller framed cat than either of the other two, and he probably eats about six or seven ounces, sometimes more, per day, and is a spot-on perfect weight. He's more active than the other two, though, and also just has a crazy fast metabolism.
